Aidan Quinn Is An Adventurous Madoff With Andy Garcia On His Tail
The story of Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme ended pretty sadly-- he's an old man in jail, his family is in shambles, and a lot of innocent people lost a lot of their money. But what if it was more like an action movie, and it starred Aidan Quinn? That seems to be the basic concept behind The Exodus of Charlie Wright, an indie drama that begins shooting next week in Mexico and L.A. Quinn has signed on to play the titular character, a Los Angeles billionaire who retreats to Tijuana when his scheme is revealed, only to be pursued by a whole bunch of people who want their money.
According to THR, Andy Garcia will play a Mexican gangster on his tail, Mario van Peebles will play a federal agent assigned to the cast, and Luke Goss will play a former client who sends thugs after poor Charlie as well. R. Ellis Frazier previously wrote and directed the short Baines, and will be making his feature directing debut with the film, and will produce alongside Geoffrey Ross.
